Mulan (2020)

Niki Caro directs Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen and Gong Li in this live action remake of the Disney animated classic about a Chinese girl who pretends to be a boy warrior to protect her family from dishonour and save the Emperor.

These remakes are the epitome of inessential but occasionally (this, The Jungle Book) Disney get the update spot-on and deliver fine family entertainment. Mulan has epic sweep, adventure, colour, convincing villains and consistent action. We would have loved to have seen it on the big screen but I was pleasantly surprised at just what an impressive blockbuster it was. Thoroughly entertaining, well acted and eye-popping!
